If one did not already know in advance that the saxophone was invented in France, the GENUIN CD by the Ellipsos Quartet from Nantes leaves one in no doubt of it! The four representatives of the youngest scion of the woodwind family play with the lightness of the Belle Epoque, the sensuality of Mediterranean nights and the elegance of French drivers. From Ravel's veiled Pavane to the burlesque pranks of Jean Françaix: the music on this CD is played with such versatility and color that one doesn't known where to begin or end with the dégustation… A consommer sans modération!

Revue de Presse
Collection of French press releases

Fanfare magazin
"This is a lovely and stylish recording. The four French saxophonists who make up the Ellipsos Quartet are each virtuosos. They blend together beautifully with great expressiveness." More

La nouvelle republique
"Superb!" More

Magazin Musicologie
"Voici un cédé inattendu, le troisième de l'ensemble, tant par le prodige sonore et musical, que par le choix audacieux des œuvres. Le second étant merveilleusement servi par le premier." More

Music Web International
"The recorded sound is perfect: ideally balanced, so that the instruments seem close but you get a feeling of the space of the concert hall, rather than of claustrophobia. This disc is pure pleasure." More

"Il en ressort des sonorités plus variées"
